12 Hours of NAAFI at Coyo Taco 12.1.16


Miami Art Week is hands down the craziest Miami can get. The streets are packed, the galleries are full, the parties are over the top, but it’s all worth it. The main attraction, Art Basel, brings out so many tourists and locals who have been working year-long just for this week. Of course with so many installations and parties, the schedule gets hectic, and choosing the right events gets tricky. Being more into the music side of things, the concerts, showcases, and parties are more my steeze. Red Bull Music Academy always delivers by bringing a line-up of artists and DJ’s that stand out from cookie-cutter, mainstream music. This year, they brought us 12 Hours of NAAFI:  a 12-hour party highlighting some of the dopest underground DJ’s and artists from Mexico. Think of it as a festival, packed in one day, under the roof of a small tequila bar in Wynwood. While the rest of the city was running around in the rain, once I stepped into Coyo, I completely forgot about the hassle of trying to find parking for nearly an hour. Inside, the red glow from the Xipe Totec neon sign is in tune with the beats blasting as Jubilee spins. Everyone inside is sweating their asses off, having the best time and just smiling from ear to ear. It’s very infectious and hard not to immediately get into the groove with the energy inside. Tacos are being passed out, which is the only time the dancers stop to take a break. It really feels like you’re in someone’s back yard–great music, food, tequila shots, and nothing pretentious about this scene. Jubilee, a Miami-bred DJ, manages to get us in rhythm with the theme of the night, combining latin vibes with club music. It works, and I, along with my friends, are soon dancing with everyone else. At one point I took a break, leaned against the wall and scanned the room. People dancing off beat, on beat — it didn’t matter. Everyone was having such a good time laughing and cheering friends on who were breaking it down on the dance floor. I couldn’t help but feel good and feel comfortable. RBMA brought together an event that was about inclusion during what some might consider a “invite-only” kind of week. The limited edition take-home bag designed by SANGREE was an added bonus, to an already amazing event. *Photo Creds: TheCameraClicks and Stacey Gamble*



Art Basel 2014 Guide

So, it’s going to be a crazy week ahead of us. By us I mean the few who have the pleasure of being in Miami for this special time of the year, Art Basel. This weeklong art festival turned hotbed of culture and influence literally transforms Miami into another World and I LOVE IT. Parties, art, clothing, alcohol, tastemakers, corporate companies, and celebrities all mix into one massive memory that will inspire you year around. Prepare yourself, get your business cards ready, charge your cell phone, and be ready to go on a moments notice because anything can happen this week. Believe me. Pharrell showed up at the first party I ever threw two Art Basel’s ago and after that I was convinced – anything goes with Art Basel.

This will be updated everyday and I’m no where close to done but I wanted to highlight some of the events going down today and throughout the week because its only Monday and the city is already ready to be LIT. I’m only putting things on this list I would actually go to other then giving you a wide range of events that don’t matter. :) Holler at me.
